Shooter women aimed at her mother and brother and shot

It is a very strange to hear that a shooter woman shot at her mom and brother. A 47-year-old woman shot at her mother and elder brother at their house in Defence Colony early on Friday. The woman, Sangeeta Singh, is a state-level shooter and was suffering from depression for a year, police said.

DCP (south) Romil Baaniya said police received a call at 12.43am from the woman’s father a retired government official—about his daughter opening fire at his wife Geeta (75) and son Harsaran (48). He also told the police that he was rushing them to a hospital.

A police team went to the private hospital, but the victims were referred to AIIMS. They were still under observation at the time of filing of this report.

“Singh was in depression and was taking medicines. On Friday morning, she took her pills with alcohol and came out of her room. She had an argument with her brother and mother,” a senior police officer said, adding that they were also probing if a property dispute was behind this.

The more immediate cause for this sudden flare-up of temper, however, was Singh being called for dinner twice, said DCP Baaniya.

The exchange became so heated that Singh took out her licensed pistol and shot at her mother twice. When Harsaran intervened to save his mother, Singh fired on his thigh too. Geeta had gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, police said.

The pistol originally belonged to Singh’s grandfather, but after he died in 2016, she got the license transferred to her own name.

Her father said he was in another room when he heard the three of them arguing. When he came out, his daughter had already fired three shots. He said if he hadn’t restrained her, she would have continued to fire.

DCP Baaniya said they registered a case under IPC and Arms Act sections and detained Singh from her house in C Block.
